Academy player, Rhian Brewster, has just scored a hat-trick for England against Brazil, in the semi-final of the under-17 World Cup in India. Let's hope that he has a very bright future with us in the years to come and good luck to him and England in the final.

I'll go with that kloppite. Sounds promising.

Scored a hat trick in the quarters as well. He has a lot of potential.

25 Oct 2017 14:46:53
He's on fire at the moment, well played kid.

25 Oct 2017 14:49:00
Consecutive hat tricks and been playing well in u23’s too. Looks a very useful player with good pace and movement, with the knack to be in right place at right time, create a half yard on his market and a clinical finish.

Hopefully his development continues.

Best thing about him is he plays like Firmino. As in he presses from the front, links up in deeper positions and can play some deft passes and flicks in and around the penalty area. Difference is, he seems to be naturally sharper in front of goal.

If he carries his goal scoring record into senior football it'd be amazing but I'm holding off on being hopeful of his future for now. He has only played at youth levels thus far and you only have to look at Mellor, Nemeth, Morgan, or Sinclair to know that it is a whole different kettle of fish when you step up to play with men. Hopefully he gets a chance to prove himself over the next 12-24 months because he is a class above nearly everyone in his age category. He's been playing u23's since he turned 16, so the u17's WC was always going to be easy picking for him. It is beneath him to be honest, but fair play to him for being grounded enough to just want to play football, regardless of the level of opposition!

Sinama pongolle got the golden boot at the U17 wc once.

Very good point Benny. Men's football is just so much harder. That's why i have faith in Arnold, Woodburn, Solanke, Gomez and Grujic though. They've shown signs they can cope with it.

Arnold has looked assured on the ball, lethal from set pieces, and physically capable since stepping up into the first team on a regular basis. Though he is no right back, long term.

Woodburn has already scored in competitive senior games, and against top opposition in pre-season.

Solanke has scored goals in the Dutch first division at 18 and also against top opposition in pre-season for us.

Gomez was Charlton's best player by 18 and is already our best centre back in my opinion.

Grujic led Red Star Belgrade to the title, and has also performed well against top teams in pre-season.

So far there is no evidence to suggest that Brewster will cope with the step up. So whilst i would love it if he did, i will avoid any hype so i don't disappoint myself if he can't adapt! Does he deserve a chance though? Definitely.

Well done to him but remember he might just have developed quicker than others. Let's not hail him as the greatest starlet just yet. Leave him to his craft and keep a quiet eye on him.

25 Oct 2017 16:37:49
Good point sbout those players Mk but sadly none of them except Gomez will get enough games to show their talent.
I feel Gurij is the next Markovic.

25 Oct 2017 16:47:05
Sounds like he has that instinct that can't be taught. That killer, goal scoring instinct that fowler had for example. Let's hope he has that professionalism that is just as important. He does sound promising though.

Does anyone know how that youngster we bought in the summer is doing? I can't rememberhis name but he looked like a little boy in the press conference. From eastern Europe I think. Was quite a big thing made of it so I thought he must be good.

25 Oct 2017 17:12:36
Good news is Woodburn signed a new long term contract :)

25 Oct 2017 18:43:17
Great news about woodburn. Hopefully he gets a few mins soon.

England under 17s are managed by Steve Cooper who use to be liverpool under 18s Coach/ Manager left two years ago. Think Jurgen kicked him out of the door he also lost on penalties in European under17s FINAL this summer to Spain, who they could face in Final .

Superred you may be talking about Tagseth? He’s playing no.8 for u18’s and doing well by all accounts.

In the u18’s/ u19’s I really like the look of Adam Lewis (converted from midfield and looking like an excellent LB now, and Camacho too. Jones and Millar look useful too.

U23’s have a few but I reckon Wilson, Dhanda, Virtue, Masterson, may all get a shot at some point.

We have a lot of talent at the academy but clearly there are only so many slots available and the step up is huge. I hope we arrange some strong loans next summer to get some of these kids some professional football at a place that will actually play them.

Owen burst on scene too at 18yo. So it can be.
